Not a "silver bullet" - but....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Catholic Voices: Putting the Case for the Church in the Era of 24-Hour News (Paperback)
Maybe not the "silver bullet" to help you win every bar room debate, but this little book is a gem if you want to avoid feeling threatened, or worse still, getting cross when something you hold dear is criticised. Worth reading if only for its "Ten Principles of Good Communication" neatly précised at the back, its methodology applies to all topics, not just those "neuralgic" issues (those that touch a nerve) that confront Catholics so often. "Catholic Voices" is surprisingly readable, and in the process you will not only learn that Catholic positions on a variety of issues are ethical, sure, but also reasonable; and perhaps just as surprising, that the media isn't as biased as those criticised might assume - once you understand how it functions. This book instantly qualified for a place on my "frequently referred to" shelf, and that is quite an honour in the O'Brien household!
